I got accepted through Brooklyn College last minute and jumped on the offer. As I am entering my second semester as a freshman, I do truly enjoy my experience so far. The school spirit is present on campus. During breaks, you can see student government giving away plenty of free items for nearby students. You also can find the school mascot on the quad with these students.There are many clubs that occur and many events such as movie night on the quad and puppy therapy.The campus is truly beautiful in all seasons. Classes are interesting and professors seem to be approachable! I highly recommend as a cheap college option.

I did a lot of my growing up at this institution. I'm grateful for the people I've met, the unique classes I've taken and the professors that have inspired me. It's a cliche saying, but it's true when people say that college is really what you make of it. The sky's the limit here, don't think it isn't just because it's a CUNY school! Yeah, it's not NYU, but don't think you're any less because you came/go here. Talk to your professors, get involved in club life, go to the Magner Center and go to a few of their career events and workshops. Study, make friends, go to the students events, there are so many of them. Take full advantage of what Brooklyn College has to offer. I'm so happy I went here!
I love the diversity, the campus scene, and the professors. The security is beyond amazing and makes the school feel extremely safe, your ID is needed at all times. The professors are so invested in helping that there's no way to not be able to overcome an obstacle. What I would like see change is putting back the campus bookstore, it is now avaiable online. I dislike online shopping as it is, I think making it online takes away the campus life feeling. Other than that, Brooklyn College rocks!
